“My public accounting background gives me a unique perspective into the needs of entrepreneurs so that I can deliver strategic business and tax planning advice tailored to their specific goals and needs. It is very rewarding to be able to help guide my clients through the thorny maze of ever-changing tax codes and other complex financial issues. Meeting personally with my clients is the most enjoyable part of my job and my clients have come to expect professional, competent services in a very relaxing atmosphere. My clients are my friends, so aside from the satisfaction I get from providing clients with solutions to effectively manage their business and help them meet their goals, I really enjoy attending their weddings, graduations, bar/bat mitzvahs, golf outings and charitable functions.”
